 AT HOME WITH STRANGERS

This project resulted out of a desire to provide voice to the marginalized. Trying to explore and understand the life of a person with Asperger’s syndrome, I have spent over two years working with and photographing Michelle Mohn, an artist on the autism spectrum. Using direct self-representation and visual comparisons within the unembellished imagery, the work sheds light onto life and peculiarities of a creative person on the spectrum.

It was important to me that Michelle, my model and the subject of the work, had a direct voice that would speak to others. I and Michelle developed a visual language, combining my portraits and her paintings in order to reflect and fully represent her inner world.
